Meet our new challenge team members and Winners of ODBDSLC42!

We hope you all had a great Christmas yesterday celebrating the peace and joy of the season and the birthday of our Lord.  Today I am here briefly to announce our winners for ODBDSLC42 and to announce some new challenge team players!!!

We thank Patter and Chrissy for being a part of the challenge team!  While they will remain a part of the ODBD team...they will be part of a new and exciting venture for ODBD (stay tuned in for something new in January!) and not as challenge team members.  Thanks for all your beautiful creations ladies. 

We would like to welcome back the ever so talented and sweet Silke Ledlow to Our Daily Bread Designs.  Silke will be joining the challenge team!!  Welcome Silke!

Silke Ledlow

We would also like to extend a very warm welcome to our January-February Guest Challenge Team member Pat Smethers aka patsmethers at SCS!! Pat is a sweetheart and I know her creations will inspire you!!  She is a well known crafter of the Splitcoast Stampers Community .  You can view her gallery here. We are so thrilled to have her as a part of our team as a guest.   Here are a few words about Pat.

I have lived in Clovis, Ca. for the last 32 years with my sweetheart of 34 years. We have two grown sons and will be grandparents for the first time sometime in January! (It's a boy!) My hubby retires in two months and I will retire in May 2012- then our entire family is relocating to the small, quiet town of Cody, Wyoming.

I have dabbled in quilting for years, however, stamping offers "instant" results! Stamping, my new therapy! I am in love with stamping and it fills my dreams, literally! I wake with cards in my head, and to be a small part of ODB is a dream come true! I began stamping seven years ago when I went to my first SU class- that was ll it took! My demo, Natalie, has become my best friend. My first stamp set was scripture, and I was thinking "although I could not 'really' make cards", I could stamp scripture to make stationary!  I love to use God's Word as the main focus on my cards, and when I stamp I pray for each one I making the card for, and truly believe that God is giving me just what this person needs. Yeah, that is God!

I am so honored to be a part of this wonderful, inspiring and encouraging community of stampers! Thank you so much for allowing me to be a guest designer! I am thrilled! 

Now on to last weeks winners!!!...
